I am a retired nurse and lost my husband 2 years ago... We were best friends and did everything together.

Have little family far away and few friends. So sad and lonely.

Continue with my hobbies and volunteered at animal shelter to keep busy. Tried dating but at age 72 and its so different and disappointing.

Just want someone to do things with and just talk. Hate the thought of being alone without someone to care about me and vice versa...

Just tired of living alone. What to do?

Ideas for ya....
by: Linda/ Iowa


Have you thought of getting a pet yourself? Maybe a small dog, someone you could love, talk to and walk. That would get you out and about. Even in the cold weather, you could walk around the yard.
Or go to a church, mine always have something going on.

The idea here is to enjoy life, I too retired a while ago. But found my trucker husband was having an affair. Why is the wife always the last to know? We are still married but I am so lonely now. No husband hasn't give up on the affair.

Yet my heart went out to you. I wish I could help you more. Maybe you could find someone to visit with every two weeks.

I do that, her name is Jane and she sure helps me find things to enjoy.

I hope you find your spot. Take care!
